Man, did I need Friday. Let’s celebrate with a few fifteen-word (or fewer) book reviews:
1. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Now I know what everyone’s been raving about for the last year. Read it now.
2. Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
Wasn’t a read-aloud in our house; what stands out for me is the color palette.
3. A Man for All Seasons by Robert Bolt
I watched a few episodes of The Tudors and recognized characters because of this play.
4. All My Friends Are Dead by Avery Monsen and Jory John
I should read this aloud to houseplants as a warning.
5. Claudia and the New Girl (The Baby-sitters Club, #12 by Ann M. Martin
I learned about Andrew Wyeth from this book. Well played, Martin.
